For the six months ended June 30, 2009 unaudited revenue was $2.9 million, EBITDA was $.2 million and net income was $.2 million.

NeuLion CEO, Nancy Li, stated, "We are delighted to welcome Hugh Dobbie and his team at INSINC as well as all of INSINC's partners and clients into the NeuLion family. We think there are unique synergies that exist between many of our respective sports and other clients that can contribute to the acceleration of the growth of both businesses."

INSINC offers a range of software tools for broadcasting video content over the Internet (IPTV). Its largest clients are in the area of sports including the Western Hockey League (WHL), Ontario Hockey League (OHL), Central Hockey League (CHL), British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL), Central Canadian Hockey League (CCHL), Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL), and Central Junior Hockey League (CJHL). When combined with NeuLion clients such as the National Hockey League (NHL) and the American Hockey League (AHL), the Company will have an unmatched presence in the delivery of online video experiences for the North American hockey world.

INSINC's other sports clients include the Canadian Football League (CFL) and when combined with NeuLion clients the National Football League (NFL) and the approximately 175 US colleges, schools and conferences for which NeuLion provides online broadcasting of sports programming, the combined Company will have an unmatched presence in the delivery of online video experiences for the North American sports world.

Furthermore, our shareholders will be positioned to participate in the growth we expect in the IPTV industry for our combined company."

Nancy Li added, "We believe that we are still only in the early stages of the evolution of IPTV and that this evolution will dramatically change how businesses interact with their consumers online and how viewers will consume media. NeuLion, with our particular expertise in sports and international programming, will now be further enhanced by the strong client relationships of INSINC, their strong team of people with unique domain expertise and the synergies that we believe will come from this business combination."

The transaction will be subject, among other things, to shareholder approval on behalf of INSINC, court approval and approval by the Toronto Stock Exchange of the listing of the common shares of the Company issued in the transaction.
